That looks an excellent team, the only slight worry of mine being the name at the very bottom.

I take back what I wrote. I love the man & want to have his babies. Finest referee in the land, all round good bloke, deserving of a knighthood at the very least.






Please note, this opinion could change by 5pm tomorrow.

I had a dream last night we'd lost this game 57-12 but won every game after that and beat Exeter in play off semi but I was going to miss the final because it was delayed a week due to problems at Twickenham and we were in Pirates village.

Anyway two good sides should make for a very good game and I think we'll snatch it last 10 mins.

Two strong sides. Decent match up. The team bus is making good progress.

Looking forward to a good game.

Better than my dream. I woke up dreaming of hummus. I don't even like it!

Maxwell Keys has improved enormously with a couple of extra years experience. I no longer have a fit of the heeby jeebies when I see his name.

Must agree 're Maxwell-Keys he now seems to understand how to let the game flow not constantly blowing his whistle making the game a nightmare to watch and will probably end up a top international referee.

I had a dream last night in which I was chatting with Maro Itoje at a game. It didn't start off well though when I called him 'Mario' :-(
